    Vertical, if held out in front of you the fish will look bigger.

    You must "present" the fish - not vertically or horizontally - more of a 45 degree angle - tail up. It's an art form perfected by very few. Does depend on species/weight and most importantly whether you care or not for the picture.

    When I catch a really big fish........I like to lay it on the deck, stand besides it and raise and bend my leg and rest one foot on it.......like a big game lion kill!

    .. it's more how you accessorize... your yellow shirt layered under the white tee just sets the mood for the entire pic and plays off the yellow in the finns



    just kiddn.. very nice fish I suck at posing with fish
